Reading Around the World – modern African books

Diana at A Haven for Booklovers has been my source of African book recommendations so far. I’ve been exploring and found this website – there are some good looking books on this page!!
If you have any book recommendations from your part of the world, please let me know!!

    • My pleasure! I appreciate everything you share.

      I haven’t read any of these books (but I will!). I’m nearly finished Americanah and I feel like I have learned a lot. I had no idea that natural hair was such a political issue. 😦


      • Oh I’m glad that Americanah is turning out to be a great read for you:-)There’s so much controversy over natural hair.I almost lost my job last year for option to have dreadlocks.Its just hair but it attracts so much discussion.Enjoy the book 🙂
